  • The kids loved the park. More made for small children there was still some interesting things for the 10 year olds to do. The tree house, elevated platforms, and the flying fox were the best for them.  more »
  • A free children's playground is a short walk from Botanic Garden station. The place to play in the water was under renovation and was not available, but there are slides, play equipment, trampolines and zip lines. The parents who are waiting because it is hot are tough, but it is just right to let the child play.

  • Perfect for Young kids. This gardens is designed perfectly for kids. I brought my grandson there and he enjoyed every bit of it. It's also very educational as there is a farm there showing the plants, vegetables we eat in this part of the world. There is also a tree house, mini water falls, water fountains park for kids to play water with and many more. This gardens is strictly for young children with their accompanied adults. Adults only are prohibited.
  • It's great to have a place to let the kids run and play. There are several different places to play for different ages including a splash pad. Paved pathways and beautiful greenery. Food can be purchased within. Best of all free.
  • I brought my students here before, and I just say, this garden is amazing. There are so many things a child can do. Do bear in mind of your child safety as they might get lost inside. I would say bring your child to this garden at least thrice a year.
  • Great garden for kid. Exhilarating experience walking on the unsteady bridge. Precise, clear and lively information. Even had a farm! You can pick up garden tips there. Admire the greenery close to eco lake.
  • Awesome garden just for kids! This place can be a little hard to find - the maps of the botanic gardens imply that you can get to it from within the park but there is only one entrance and it's from the road but it is well worth it. There is a little canteen and a bunch of different play areas inside. We hit up the water-play area to cool off then the tree-house slides and the maze but there are more, e.g. sandpit and elevated walkways. Recommended.
